Very Good
Verdict
The Autopsy of Jane Doe is an effective film thanks to its accurate depictions of coroner work and a very eerie setting. It loses steam in its final moments but overall, this is one of the most impressive horror films I've seen in some time. A somewhat disappointing Blu-Ray from Scream Factory and IFC Midnight, however.

Blu-Ray review

the autopsy of jane doe review 3

Scream Factory and IFC Midnight have released The Autopsy of Jane Doe in a Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack, and it comes with a slipcover as well. The video is presented in anamorphic widescreen 2.35:1 aspect ratio and it looks great on Blu-Ray, with excellent detail that emphasizes the dark lighting. Audio comes in either 5.1 DTS-HD or 2.0; obviously the 5.1 is the preferred choice here due to all the thunder and atmospheric effects, but the 2.0 isn’t bad either with some louder dialogue in the central speakers. There are also English or Spanish subtitles.

No real extras on this disc besides IFC Midnight trailers, TV spot, trailers, and teasers. This is, unfortunately, a bad decision on the part of Scream Factory and IFC Midnight, because both Australian and Canadian versions of the film released with some extensive extras including an interview with Emile Hirsch and a behind-the-scenes featurette. It’s a headscratcher why this release didn’t get the same treatment.

Still, the film itself is excellent enough to own without any features, and that’s especially true if you don’t want to spend shipping costs to get an edition with better extras. Just a reminder – this is a Walmart exclusive releasing today, 5/2/17. If you don’t want to pick it up from Walmart, you’ll have to wait for its official release on June 27th.
